Alan is an excellent guide! He is very knowledgeable and has a sparkling personality to match. Not only did we see all the important sights, but Alan gave us insight in the history and politics of the region. We had a great day! I would highly recommend Alan to anyone visiting Edinburgh.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Christie, Many thanks for taking the time to review my tour, it's very much appreciated. Regards, Alan

Guides like Alan are why our group of 8 always chooses Tours by Locals. Once again, we were very pleased by the abundance of facts presented with local flare. Also, Alan adds his own contagious sense of humor adding unique anecdotes along the way. We highly recommend Tours by Locals and Alan Fee for Edinburgh. You will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Debbie!! Thank you for your lovely review, I'm delighted that you all had a good time. Perhaps we will see you again some day, for round two?!! Regards, Alan

Five Star rating! We would give him a six if we could! Alan met us at the ship port and saw my wheelchair and made a joke of it, setting the tone for the day. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his city and country, which made our 8 hours with him so enjoyable. If you love background stories, good humor and beautiful scenery, then Alan's tour is for you. We would hire him over and over again if we return to Edinburgh!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robin. Thank you for your lovely review, it was my absolute pleasure to share your time in Edinburgh with you. I promise to be in touch regarding the stories. Warmest regards, Alan

Alan was very engaged and excited about showing us Edinburgh. He entertained us with tales of people and places that made Edinburgh come alive. He knew how to time the tour to avoid crowds and had us visit the palace when it was less crowded - a definite plus. We definitely enjoyed our time with Alan and highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marilyn!! Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to show you all around. Warmest regards, Alan

Alan was a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable but also fun to spend the day with. He was also very accommodating when we had a preference. I wish we had more than just one day with him to explore Edinburgh.

Alan was wonderful. He met us at our hotel promptly, with a very comfortable vehicle and was very engaging all day. He showed us many things and provided details that we would not have seen on our own. In addition, he took us to a (gluten free) Crepe stand that was amazing for everyone. His stories along the Royal Mile really brought it to life. It was just the perfect day. We had stayed overnight in Edinburgh as we had done the Tattoo the previous evening. He promptly took us to our cruise ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dawn! Thank you for your lovely comments. I'm delighted that you had a good day and remember, if you ever come back to Scotland give me a call? Warmest regards, Alan
Frederick SteffanUnited States
We had a marvelous day with Alan. He tailored our tour to our preferences, both in advance and "on-the-fly" during our day together. Alan very astutely chose which sites to visit in the order that allowed us to avoid the dreadful crowds that gathered later in the day in Edinburgh, while still visiting every site that interested us. Finally, his suggestion for a typical Edinburgh pub lunch venue was a perfect choice. This guy knows his city, its history, and its charms.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Fred! Thank you for your kind words and review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your day. Warmest regards, Alan
Jeffery HallUnited States
Alan is an excellent tour guide and my wife and I very much enjoyed our tour of Edinburgh. He's quite a character and we loved hearing his stories!
Raymond WuUnited States
Alan is very nice to use a Mercedes Mini van that seats 7 comfortably to take our group of 6 around town. The cruise ship allowed us only 6 hours instead of 8, but he was able to squeeze all city sites without missing anything. He aimed to please, providing bottle water and etc. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Raymond! Thank you for your review, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your day. Warmest regards, Alan
Angela RichmanUnited States
Our tour was excellent! Our guide Allen was very knowlegable and made our trip a wonderful learning session. Taking this tour is the only way to explore a new city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Angela! Thank you for your comments, it was my absolute pleasure to show you around. Perhaps I shall see you again, if you come back for another visit? Fondest regards, Alan.
